    then solve second equation for y, because it is easiest \[-9x+y=46\] \[y=9x+46\] and substitute into first equation

    2x+7y=-3 (*9) -----> 18x+63y=-27 -9x+y=46 (*2) -----> -18x+2y=92 <=> 65y=65 <=>y=1

    2x+7*1=-3 => 2x=-10 => x=-5

    \[2x+7y=-3\] \[2x+7(9x+46)=-3\] \[65x+322=-3\] \[65x=-325\] \[x=-5\]

    the find y by substitution. Alexis got right answer using elimination. doesn't matter which you use
